In this paper non-normal distributions via scale mixtures are introduced into insurance applications. The symmetric distributions of interest are the Student-t and exponential power (EP) distributions. A Bayesian approach is adopted with the aid of simulation to obtain posterior summaries. We shall show that the computational burden for the Bayesian calculations is alleviated via the scale mixtures representations. Illustrative examples are given.Drekic, S. & Willmot, G. E. On the density and moments of the t…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
